SHAFAQNA – The Prophet of Islam (PBUH) had a very close relation with Abutalib (RA) and when he passed away, the Prophet (PBUH) declared that year the year of sorrow and in his funeral, the Prophet (PBUH) said: Ah, my father! How sad I am from your death;Â to you, I was like an eye in the eye-socket and like a soul in a body [1, 2].
 From Tarikh Tabari as mentioned in the book of Abutalib, Momen-e-Quraish.
